Happy Halloween!!

This is my favorite holiday. We had a party on the 20th (because my brother was visiting then), but this year was kind of mellow. We usually do a haunted house for the kids, but with all the construction on the garage addition, we decided not to this year. My mom is still here in her motor home, so she handed out candy too...kinda funny (she had a tiny jack-o-lantern in the window). We worked for the last couple days on the ATCs for the House Swap II on Here they are:

Mom's Visiting

Ok...Ok...I haven't been very crafty lately cuz my mom and brother are visiting. Mom and I did manage to 'knit' a couple scarves with our Knifty Knitters (pictures later). We also went to a "Movie at the Cemetery" hosted by the Evergreen Cemetery Society. We saw was way cool and I got a couple pictures with 'orbs'!!

I also created this card from my neice, Shannon, who turned 17 on October 14th.

Photo Card

I was out of town on business last week, so I haven't had much time for crafting until today.

I found this idea in a book on making cards. I decided to make them to hang in my guest bedroom. The photos are of my great grandmother and grandfather, Laura & Lemuel Stout. I used some of my home-made paper in the 'matting'.

I first put them in some really ornate frames, but I didn't like that. I ended up putting them in simple wooden frames that don't overshadow the photos.
